a desolate christianconnor.dreamwidth.org (I only just moved in!)
Location/Country of Origin:
Writer / Local government officer
Gail Simone, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Alan Moore
Francis Manapul, J. G. Jones, George Perez, Phil Jimenez
Superman since I was a kid, Lois Lane, Superboy, Cassie Sandsmark, COIE and Voldy Supergirls, MJ Watson...
Desert Island Top Ten Comics (series/issues):
Birds of Prey
, and probably Morrison's
Cable and Deadpool
. That's not ten but my brain has turned to shit.
All time favourite panel/page/scene (scans encouraged):
Lots of comic scans end up as my wallpaper, but especially Francis Manapul's picture of Conner, Ma Kent and Krypto next to the cornfield. I just gawp at the pretty. Oh and Kon and Cassie making out (by Todd Nauck, in some comic that I don't remember by someone I've never heard of, never ever).
How do you feel about Rob Liefeld?
The childish grin on his face makes me think of 1980s australian daytime soaps. And not in a good way.
What's your stance on bees?
Bees are my gods ... or some far better pun that I'm too tired to think up. (Earwigs make chutney? Spiders make gravy?)
Doctor Who, Star Wars, Buffy
Just tend to watch 'em ... and maybe get a little lost on the Wikis ... and fall in love with Rose and Faith. That's not weird, right? Right?
Moderately to the left
Scott Walker, Billie Holiday, Ian Curtis, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Audrey Hepburn, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Scarlett Johansson, James Stewart, David Tennant, Stephen Fry

Scott Fitzgerald, Vladimir Nabokov, James Joyce, Georges Bataille, Italo Calvino, Thomas Pynchon
Someone You Admire:
I guess anyone named above, except Mr Liefeld
What else are you into?
Philosophy, Doctor Who, Shakespeare, Guinness, running
What's one awesome thing you did this year?
Managed to get tickets for the penultimate night of the RSC's
, with a recently returned David Tennant. But the year's not quite finished yet: November is not Nanowrimo for me, but the month I send my manuscript to some prospective agents.
